Karate for 55+

DOUVRIS offers karate for mature adults. All-inclusive membership includes karate uniform. Get your black belt. Set your own pace. 

Our Karate for 55+ program is designed for men and women over the age of 55. Karate offers many benefits to adults of all ages and this program is designed to help mature adults take advantage of all of them, including:

  • Improve concentration
  • Increase overall energy levels and enhanced abilities in other activities
  • Improve balance, flexibility, strength, coordination
  • Increased anaerobic efficiency
  • Learn self-defense skills
  • Meet other active adults
  • Increased strength and flexibility
  • Increased stamina
  • Firm and tone your body

The program is unique from our regular Adult Karate Program in these ways:

  • Emphasis on gentle movement
  • Training without sparring
  • Greater focus on kata (choreographed forms that improve focus and concentration)

The 55+ Karate program includes:

  • Stretching, warm-up and cool-down
  • Individual progression: move at your own pace
  • Progress to Black Belt and beyond if you choose
  • Train with like-minded people
  • Access to all Fitness classes

Benefits of our Karate for 55+ Program:

  1. Karate allows people to work at their own pace, so there is never pressure to keep up.
  2. Karate is a low impact activity that works every muscle and bone in the body.
  3. Karate trains both mind and body.
  4. Karate offers a journey for all participants to embark on. We have students in their 70’s who have achieved their Black Belt.
  5. There is always reason for every person to learn self-defense skills to keep them safe.

Douvris Adult members share their experiences at Douvris.

what our members say...

“In my opinion, Sensei Peter and Master John are the best in the business. Most of the other dojos in the city are former students of DOUVRIS, and we all know that the copy is never as good as the original.”
“We LOVE Douvris Westboro. It has been a huge part of our lives for 4 years now and I will continue to highly recommend it to friends and others. We feel welcome there, it’s like a family.”
- CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM -

Striving 4 Excellence

character_development

DOUVRIS Martial Arts strongly believes in developing the character of our students along with the martial arts skills we teach them. The Striving for Excellence character development program was developed with over 30 years experience in teaching children respect, confidence and self-discipline. Striving for Excellence gives our members the opportunity to discuss, practice, and apply character development traits in their lives. The program includes a Karate Kids Workbook and a Karate Tykes Colouring book which children complete each month at home. The lessons outlined in the workbook are designed to accompany the “Word of the Month” which instructors discuss with students during each class.

The Word of the Month for October is

Courage

For us at Douvris Martial Arts, courage means trying new things even if they scare us. And like anything else, courage increases through regular practice. That’s how we help students become brave, by teaching them to push through their limits and improve themselves every day.

“Everyone that steps through these doors takes the first step in showing us their courage,” Sensei Cody Diesbourg explains, adding that it takes guts to launch yourself into a new adventure, even if only to find out whether you like it or not.

Karate Trial Offer

Our Karate Trial Offer includes two classes and a new uniform for $19.95. It is valid for anyone aged 4 through adult. Our Karate Trial Offer is available at all of our Ottawa locations.
